How The Food You Eat Impacts Your Genes

how the food you eat impacts your genesHow The Food You Eat Impacts Your Genes And Why We Must Pay Attention To This.

Our progress in understanding human genes has been amazing and humbling. About 150 years ago, Gregor Mendel used pea plants to establish some rules of inheritance, and about 50 years ago, Watson and Crick described the double helix of DNA.

In 2003, the entire human genome was sequenced. Amazing! How the food you eat impacts your genes is revolutionary as it gives everyone a chance to attain true health. A person can actually reverse years of “damage done”.

What was humbling was that, when the number of genes in human cells were counted and compared to other organisms, our genome was considerably smaller than that of many other species. For example, humans have about 25,000 genes in each cell, while the tiny water flea has over 30,000!

Scientists had assumed that due to our advanced abilities and organ structure, we’d have over 100,000 genes.

While we don’t have that many genes, scientists have very recently discovered ways to control the modest number we have, in an exciting new field called epigenetics. It explains how changes in gene activity can occur without changing our actual DNA.

One way that we can influence genes without changing their basic structure is through the foods we eat. It may be that our genes load the gun, but our lifestyle pulls the trigger. The impact of nutrition on our genes is often called nutrigenomics.

Put a different way: Our fork is so powerful it can not only transport food to our mouth, it can be used as a genetic on and off switch to alter our weight, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, cancer growth, and even our chances of healthy aging.

My video defining what is Epigenetics and how food impacts your genes

 To date, most of the elegant studies on nutrigenomics have been performed with a plant based, low fat menu, the so-called Ornish Diet. Let’s look at some of these mind-blowing experiments.

1. A plant-based diet can turn off prostate cancer genes.

Dr. Ornish, a cardiologist, fed 31 men with low-grade prostate cancer a plant-based diet with fewer than 10% of calories from fat. The men were encouraged to walk, meditate and meet in group sessions. At the end of only three months, 48 genes crucial to cancer growth were found to be more active but 453 genes (ones that controlled for tumor growth and protein production) were less active in producing proteins. Overall, blood tests for prostate cancer activity improved and tumors shrunk. These epigenetic changes from the lifestyle plan were doing great things for these men.

2. A plant-based diet slows aging.

From the same group studied above, Dr. Ornish measured the activity of an enzyme produced by genes, telomerase, believed to be involved in slowing the aging process. At five years, the age-related decrease in telomerase activity was much less in the plant-based low fat group than a control group and their telomeres were longer, suggesting a slowing of the aging process. Nice!

3. A plant-based diet improves inflammation, weight, and vascular health.

A recent research group in Pennsylvania studied 63 individuals with heart disease who followed the Ornish program and compared them to a group of 63 people who did not follow any particular program. While the control group experienced no improvement in health, the Ornish group lost weight and blood pressure fell by about 10%.

At 12 weeks, researchers found that 26 genes were exhibiting different activity in the Ornish group. After a year, 143 genes were doing the same. The genes that promoted inflammation and blood vessel injury were significantly reduced in activity. The control group showed no improvements as they maintained their standard diet during the year.

When Hippocrates wrote 2,400 years ago to “let food be thy medicine,” he had no idea that scientific experiments would one day prove him a visionary. Food is no longer just a source of calories containing protein, carbs and fats. Food is information and can be viewed as a remote control to our genes, turning them on and off by a variety of modifications.

Our fork is the most powerful surgical instrument there is. Load it up with a rainbow colored, organic, plant based diet and enjoy more time to pursue our passions and dreams, free of illness and medications. Those skinny jeans are just a forkful away, you are in control.

Dr. Kahn nailed it here in this article as so many studies are showing and proving the impact good nutrition has on our overall health. This should wake you up and hopefully it causes you to start to examine what you eat on the daily basis. We have a health crisis in the US and the majority of it starts with what we put on our forks and what we drink. It’s time to get serious and improve you health!

Vegetable Extract Treats Autism Better Than Drugs

Vegetable Extract Treats Autism Better Than Drugs

Written By:
Sayer Ji, Founder

The CDC says there is no treatment for autism, but this vegetable extract significantly improved the condition in a recent clinical trial.
Presently, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is considered a condition with no known conventional treatment. According to the CDC: "There are no medications that can cure ASD or treat the core symptoms."[1] With a prevalence rate in the U.S. estimated to be 1 in every 68 children,[2] a growing number of families are actively searching for safe, affordable and effective interventions.
Thankfully, and despite the failings of pharmaceutical-based medicine, there are natural interventions that have been studied and appear to hold great promise. For instance, we have indexed research from the National Library of Medicine on over 30 natural substances that may play a role in improving the condition. You can view these study abstracts on our Autism Spectrum Disease research database, and you will also find a list there of over 20 substances that should be avoided there, including heavy metals in vaccines and common dietary components like gluten.

Broccoli Extract Does The "Impossible": Improves Autism Spectrum Disorder

Of all the natural substances we have reviewed with potential value in the treatment of ASD, sulforaphane, a molecule found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, is perhaps the most promising candidate.
A groundbreaking study published in 2014 in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA titled, "Sulforaphane treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD)," found that a broccoli sprout extract significantly improved the behavior of boys and men with ASD. The researchers pointed out that, presently, no conventional, mechanism-based treatment is available for ASD. Sulforaphane was selected, in part, because its physiological effects are well characterized and ideal for those with ASD:
Dietary sulforaphane, of recognized low toxicity, was selected for its capacity to reverse abnormalities that have been associated with ASD, including oxidative stress and lower antioxidant capacity, depressed glutathione synthesis, reduced mitochondrial function and oxidative phosphorylation, increased lipid peroxidation, and neuroinflammmation."
The placebo-controlled, randomized pilot study of 44 males, ages 13-27, showed that after 18 weeks of treatment with a sulforaphane-rich broccoli sprout extract, 46% had significant improvements in social interactions and 42% has significant improvements in verbal communication.
Additionally, more than half the participants showed decreases in abnormal behaviors, including irritability, hyperactivity and repetitive movements. Of note, once treatment stopped, most of the behaviors returned to pretreatment levels. For more details on the study, read a Medscape report on the study, including an interview with the study's lead researcher.
The dosing schedule was determined by body weight:
  • 100 lbs or less: one capsule containing 50 µmol (232 mg) of sulforaphane-rich broccoli extract was given daily
  • 101–199 lbs, 100 µmol (two capsules of 232 mg each) of sulforaphane-rich broccoli extract was given daily
  • More than 200 lbs: 150 µmol (three capsules of 232 mg each) of sulforaphane-rich broccoli extract was given daily

Sulforaphane: A Largely Ignored Panacea-like Phytocompound

It may come as a surprise to many reading this that so simple and natural a substance as broccoli extract could have significant therapeutic value in a condition which is considered refractory to conventional treatment and whose causes, including vaccines, are considered politically incorrect to discuss, despite evidence provided by one of the CDC's senior vaccine scientists to support the connection.
But the truth is that sulforaphane is no newcomer to the medical research community. It happens to be one of the most extensively studied and promising natural substances in existence. You will find over 1200 published studies on pubmed.gov and you'll find an archive of over 200 citations on our database indicating its value in a staggering 150 different conditions.
Keep in mind that sulforaphane concentrations are several hundred times higher in the broccoli sprout versus mature broccoli. There are now a wide range of manufacturers that produce broccoli sprout extract making it all the more convenient to obtain and administer a therapeutic dose.

Anti-Vaccine Witch Hunt FAIL Dr. Jack Wolfson Cleared Of All Charges

Anti-Vaccine Witch Hunt FAIL Dr. Jack Wolfson Cleared Of All Charges(NaturalNews) After Arizona cardiologist Dr. Jack Wolfson spoke out about the potential dangers of vaccines following the contrived Disneyland measles outbreak, he was aggressively attacked by the vaccine medical-industrial complex, which routinely accuses anyone who questions the party line on vaccines as being a danger to society.

Click here to search for "Dr. Jack Wolfson" on GoodGopher.com.

Organized by vaccine industry trolls and paid negative PR operatives, a total of 38 complaints were filed against Dr. Jack Wolfson with the Arizona state medical board. This is all part of the effort of the vaccine industry to destroy the credibility of any person who exercises true scientific, rational thought on the issue of risks versus rewards for vaccine interventions in children and adults. The idea here is that if enough punishment and aggression is directed against some doctors who speak out on the issue of vaccine side effects, then all the other doctors who may be witnessing these damaging effects of vaccines will decide to stay silent.

Dr. Wolfson was smeared by the mainstream media while

receiving death threats from vaccine trolls

Like many physicians who tell the truth about vaccine side effects and potential dangers, Dr. Wolfson received death threats and was threatened with violence. This is more common than you might suppose -- the very same industry that routinely commits medical violence against children in the form of toxic vaccine ingredients is also well-known for encouraging and even organizing online threats of violence against physicians who are attempting to help protect children.

The "chilling effect" of these campaigns to discredit compassionate doctors is extraordinarily powerful, and it's one of the main reasons why so many people are terrified at speaking out against the vaccine industry and its ongoing damaging and maiming of innocent children. We are literally living in a modern day medical police state where informed opinions that question the official narrative of the vaccine industry are simply not tolerated by the establishment.

The Arizona Osteopathic Medical Board took up the complaints against Dr. Jack Wolfson, and they concluded that although Dr. Wolfson's statements might not reflect the consensus of the medical establishment, they are an acceptable expression of Dr. Wolfson's free speech rights to voice his own educated medical opinion on matters relating to public safety and medical practices.

Vaccine industry FAIL: Dr. Wolfson will not be silenced

All the doctors and trolls and Pharma-funded operatives who were calling for Dr. Wolfson's license to be revoked, in other words, have once again failed to achieve their desired aim. Dr. Wolfson continues to practice medicine in Arizona as a well-respected cardiologist, where he is widely celebrated by his patients for being a doctor who isn't paralyzed into silence by the medical system... and is therefore able to offer extremely valuable opinions and insight on medical issues affecting millions of people today.

Patients are now flocking to Dr. Wolfson because they know he's someone who can be trusted to tell the truth about public health issues, and he won't be silenced by the medical system that wants to keep patients in the dark on issues that impact their health.

Here at Natural News, we salute Dr. Wolfson for having the courage and perseverance to stand his ground and tell the truth, even in the face of a delusional mob of vaccine fanatics. The truth is the most dangerous thing in modern medicine today, an industry built on lies, propaganda and profits. The very last thing the industry wants people to know is the truth about vaccine side effects and the shocking lack of efficacy found in many of the vaccines being sold today, which utterly lack any real scientific testing at all. See Merck vaccine fraud exposed by two Merck virologists; company faked mumps vaccine efficacy results for over a decade, says lawsuit.

The fact that Dr. Wolfson was so aggressively attacked for defending medical integrity is all the evidence you need that the vaccine industry is a house of cards built on medical delusions and a "science mob mentality" rather than scientific truth. After all, any system of medicine based on rigorous science rather than propaganda would have no fear at all of someone raising relevant questions.

For those of you in Arizona or anywhere across America who would like to visit Dr. Wolfson as a patient, you may learn about his cardiology practice at the following website:

Dr. Jack Wolfson's public statement

What follows is the statement released by Dr. Wolfson, describing how he was cleared of all charges and complaints that were leveled against him for speaking out on the issue of vaccine safety:

To those medical doctors who called for my license to be revoked, I have two words for you... case dismissed.

Actually I had two other words for you, but children may be reading this post.

The Arizona Osteopathic Medical Board briefly reviewed my case and decided that while many people may be against my opinions, some people may be in agreement with me. But it is my First Amendment right to MAKE those statements. Case dismissed.

Some of you may not have heard my story which culminated in 38 complaints to the medical board, so let me recap.

In late January of this year, I was interviewed by NBC regarding cases of the measles virus that appear to have started at Disneyland. Many voiced their displeasure with my television comments. In response, I crafted a blog post on VaccineImpact.com that went viral, viewed by hundreds of thousands and shared all over social media. The article was a scathing condemnation of parents who blindly follow their doctor's advice, loading up their children with vaccines. Most parents do not question vaccine safety or the benign childhood infections vaccines were designed to prevent. I stand by that post today as much as on the day I crafted it.

The mass circulation of the post led to an appearance on CNN with Erin Burnett. After a lopsided debate in which the deck was stacked against me, the talking-head moron, Burnett, goes off her teleprompter script to announce to the world that she, "Dr. Burnett" did her research. She vaccinated her children. My guess is that she spent her child's doctor visit texting on her cell phone.

Later that same evening, I let the devil into my house. Her name is Elizabeth Cohen of CNN. After 45 minutes of taping, I unfortunately gave her the sound bite she wanted. The same question was asked over and over. "Could you live with yourself if your child infected another child and that child died?"

My response always started off..." As a father, as a doctor, and as a human being, it pains me to think of any child getting sick. But, I am not going to put my child's life at risk to theoretically save another child." In my final moment of frustration, I gave her the sound bite she craved, as a vampire would lust for blood.

I also stated that the immuno-compromised child in the discussion likely got cancer from a vaccine onslaught. Formaldehyde, a component of vaccines, has been linked with leukemia, the exact cancer that afflicted the child in the story. Again, it pains me that parents are so ignorant as to allow their children to eat, drink, bath, and wear chemicals. But nothing is worse than injecting the poisons directly into the body.

To all the pediatricians in the world, please show me the study that found 69 doses of 16 vaccines do not cause cancer, auto-immune disease, and brain injury.

The number one job of a parent is to protect their children. My wife ate pure organic Paleo while pregnant. We did a home birth, breast fed for three years, and co-sleep with our children. We avoid dangerous household products.

There is no freakin' way we are injecting them with known carcinogens and immune activators, the exact toxins we spend our lives trying to avoid. After all, we are talking about mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, antibiotics, aborted human fetal tissue, animal tissue, ethylene glycol etc. All this to prevent viruses like measles and chicken pox. Chicken pox!

All of my media exposure and comments generated 38 complaints to the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Board and an investigation was opened. Many of those who complained were medical doctors from around the country. None were from patients of mine, of course.

Some of those doctors who complained were fellow D.O. brothers and sisters. They obviously forgot the foundations of osteopathic medicine, created by A.T. Still in the late 1800's. Still, a contemporary of D.D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, recognized that mainstream medicine was using danger treatment modalities such as mercury and arsenic. He denounced the doctors of the time and believed in the innate ability of the body to heal when given the right nutrients and causative factors are removed.

A.T. Still is rolling over in his grave seeing the vast majority of osteopaths for what they are, drug peddlers and wanna-be MD's.

After CNN, I realized mainstream media is never fair and balanced. They have an agenda to appease their advertising puppeteers. I continued to promote my message on the radio, social media, lectures, and of course, my new book, The Paleo Cardiologist. I have never gone dark as CNN accused me of doing.

Do people really want to live in a country where doctors cannot have opinions outside of those promoted by pharmaceutical companies and the doctors on their payroll? Should doctors like me shut up about pharmaceutical dangers and useless procedures? Do you wish the anti-smoking community had just shut up about the risk of tobacco? Or that leaded gasoline was still in use, or allowed in children's toys and paint for houses?

I am free to speak my mind and speak the truth, as a doctor, a father, and an American. I urge you and urge all doctors to come out of the shadows and from under the rock where they hide. Open your eyes and open your mouth.

There are hundreds of us out there on the front line defending the sanctity of children. Join us.

In health,
Jack Wolfson DO, FACC - The Paleo Cardiologist
